They're calling it the Hewlett Gulch fire, I haevn't heard a sizeup as I just started listening.

Sounds like the chopper will be taking water from Seaman reservoir.

the poudre canyon fire near fort collins has now grown to 640 acres tonight...and remains 5-percent contained. some homes remain on evacuation standby,...but fire appears to be moving away from densely populated areas. investigators believe... it was a human caused fire...but are not being specific. 150 firefighters on the ground,...another 180 ordered to the fireline. one fixed wing aircraft, two helos on site...heavy air tanker requested.

Media reporting differently, but this is from LCSO.

No evacuations have been ordered for the Hewlett Fire at this time.

I'm listening to Larimer County Fire and EMS Live Scanner Audio Feed. Are there any feeds that include USFS?

Mandatory evacuation of residents south of Bonner Springs Ranch Road along 287.
